Building work starting at 7AM, food isn't great, poor service, poor quality rooms. Went a boat trip to volcanic islands but they took us to a litter filled beach with no water or other supplies apart from some food.
An otherwise nice place is ruined by the owners attitude. My neighbor, who we had all come to know over a few days of surfing, was robbed in the night. The thief ran out and our neighbor asked us for help. In the morning all...More

Stayed here for a few nights. It is quite a unique and quirky place. They try to be eco-friendly and lots of activities are offered (surfing lessons, yoga, sunset cruises, trivia, spa, bonfires etc). They have a turtle sanctuaries and two wounded pelicans live on...More

I did the turtle release in both Monterrico in Guatemala and in El Salvador. I found both programs to be quite similar, but I actually preferred it at La Tortuga Verde because it is same day release. From what they told us in Guatemala, they keep the new born turtles for up to 48 hours before they release them. They give their reasons as to why they do this, which I respect, but I think it should be as natural a process as possible so I preferred the same day release. The volunteer could answer all of our questions and was really enthusiastic.
As for your 18th month old, they'll definitely let him watch, but I'm not sure they will let him hold a turtle (incase he drops it!)
